Abstract: Let $ a_0(n)$ and $ b_0(n)$ be the normalized Fourier coefficients of the two holomorphic Hecke eigenforms $ f(z)\in S_{2k}(\Gamma)$ and $ \varphi(z)\in S_{2l}(\Gamma)$ respectively. In 1999, Fomenko studied the following average sums of $ a_0(n)$ and $ b_0(n)$:

$\displaystyle \sum_{n \leq x}a_0(n)^3, \quad \sum_{n \leq x}a_0(n)^2b_0(n), \quad \sum_{n \leq x}a_0(n)^2b_0(n)^2, \quad \sum_{n \leq x}a_0(n)^4.$      

In this paper, we are able to improve on Fomenko's results.
